Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had a 9 hour layover in Shanghai, and decided to do a day trip to see as much of the city as I could. My guide Sophie Lee was great! I asked to see what the locals do on a Sunday. Sophie took me to various parks where the locals dance, Tai Chi, gather for gossip, and even match making. Of course I got to see the Shanghai Tower and checked out the view from the second tallest building in the world. I had a great time and look forward to visiting Shanghai again, but for more than just a day.

From the offset Kelly was excellent in communication. She was very patient with my questions and adaptable to what I needed to arrange.
On the day Penny was the guide and she was amazing. She was professional, knew the local area and was also adaptable.
The company went the extra mile and I highly recommend them. I will be using them again.

We had very long stopover in Shanghai and decided to make the best of it and leave the airport for some sightseeing. Conveniently you can get nowadays a 24 h visa on arrival without any fees.
We contacted Shanghai Melody a couple of days in advance.
Kelly was very responsive and arranged a pick up at the Maglev station Longyang Road. Penny was taking good care of us.

The company was very flexible as I reserved an afternoon tour same day (a.m). Penny arrived promptly to my door then confirmed my interests to map intineary and then we were on our way. I was able to tour Peace Hotel, The Bund, Jewish Museum/neighborhood, and Yu Gardens. She treated me to my first jianbing (pancake) and it was the best thing I ever tasted. Unforunately Confucius Temple was closed but Yu Garden was a great contigency plan. Penny is very versed in the history of China and provided in depth information on each site visited, non Google-able info. Highly intelligent and well traveled yet non-pretentious. She felt more like a friend and even helped procure my first silk scarf and joined me for dinner. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who needs to see Shanghai in a condensed amount of time with professional and pleasant tour guides. Penny is awesome!
